Adrian Marlowe is a dolphin-shifter who can shift into a dragon, a new and dangerous development to his shifter abilities. Now he’s gone from wealthy CEO to man on a mission: Figure out how to tame the dragon before it destroys him.
Landing the job as the new project manager in charge of the interior design of Waterscape’s new underwater hotel is Reese Briden’s dream job come true. Until she meets the sexy CEO and escaping the sexual tension that arises between them becomes impossible. Adrian could be the perfect lover. Except for one flaw. Well, maybe it’s not really a flaw, more of an inconvenience, because he is her boss.
Reese is feisty, beautiful and confident, and she might even be Adrian’s mate, except…she doesn’t know about the dragon. Now he has to decide whether to reveal himself or risk losing both her and his corporation. However, he just might lose himself if he lets the dragon consume him.

Excerpt (Adult Content):
I almost wished the woman standing before me was about twenty years older. A woman with short, gray hair. Maybe somebody’s beloved grandmother.
I didn’t want her to be the beautiful creature I’d been thinking about for the past two days, ever since I’d steered her toward the boat she’d fallen from. Though, now that I’d found her, I couldn’t ignore the chemistry igniting between us. Yes, I felt it. Had she? The fact that I knew her, that she was in my employment should deter my desires, but it was difficult to ignore her stunning green gaze, or the slight upward curve to her heart-shaped lips that not only made her look friendly, but sexy, or the way her silky auburn curls flowed over her shoulders, dipping into the opening of the front of her turquoise blouse. I imagined the silky strands tickling the cleavage of her breasts and I was suddenly jealous of those curls. I liked that she was tall enough that her lips would meet mine easily without having to stand on her tippy toes. I sighed, remembering the vision of her standing on the edge of the boat, her hair dripping, her clothes wet and clinging to each and every voluptuous curve on her body. The sea dragon within me shifted with amusement and caused a flutter in my stomach. He wanted me to take her on the tan leather sofa to my right. He wanted to find out how good she tasted, even though I knew keeping my dick in my pants was the better choice here.
At least for the time being.
